Happy Monday! This month, I'm the guest designer at October Afternoon. First up, this travel layout using Travel Girl. I love this line so much! For this layout, I've used some of my favorite photos from my recent trip to London.

I knew I wanted to use the Subway Token paper with its airmail stripes. The colors are just right for these photos, and the stripes add the right amount of color and pattern without being too busy. I knew I wanted the photos in a loose grid, in a general square-ish formation. Usually, I do a quick sketch using Photoshop, but this time, I just pushed the photos around until I was happy.
Once I figured out the placement for the photos, I adhered them and set to work on adding the little details. The Doo-Dads, Miscellany, and Shape Stickers were perfect to add just the right amount of detail without overwhelming the photos. I got lucky with the "double decker bus" ticket (what else screams London more than the red bus?) and the American Airlines tag because that was the airline carrier I used!
I used two different Daily Flash Alphas for my title. I'm a huge fan of titles in photos. For a finishing touch, I added a little bit of stitching in yellow. I used a ruler to poke holes into the paper, and two strands of embroidery thread to stitch.
That's it for today, friends! I have two more projects for October Afternoon coming up. Thank you for stopping by today!
